I thank you in advance for your patience. I’ll start with what’s happening now and then explain how I got here.
When I boot up, everything hangs for a few minutes before the logon screen. I can use urxvt no problem, but some things hang for minutes. Qutebrowser, Chromium, starting a supercollider server.
This happened after a channel change and some updates which were… challenging…
I’ll give more backstory after posting some info.
cat proc/version: Linux version 5.15.0 (nixbld@localhost) (gcc (GCC) 10.3.0, GNU ld (GNU Binutils) 2.35.1) #1-NixOS SMP Sun Oct 31 20:53:10 UTC 2021
cat /proc/cpuinfo: http://ix.io/3ED2
please let me know what else I can post to get help.
So back to the backstory: I was struggling with some broken software so I decided to update. I was getting the
could not find any previously installed systemd-boot error when trying to update. Then I was getting kicked from the xserver. I still have both of these problems if I go back to any pre-hanging build. and I still have the the
systemd-boot problem in the present build though it doesn’t seem to actually be causing any issues.
Honestly I don’t know how I was able to get a somewhat working upgrade build. I also updated to the newest channel.
During that process (presumably from getting randomly booted from xserver during builds) I ended up with corrupt nix-store and a bunch of disk errors. I fixed all of that, but I still have this really slow build. I have no idea what the problem is, but I am desperate to get back to work.
Please help if you can!! Thank you so much!
For clarity, this is a Thinkpad T495 running an AMD cpu.
Thank you so much in advance. Please let me know what I should be doing.
